What you'll do

Experience life in the capital like a local! We will meet at the Jongno 5ga station exit 8 and begin with a visit to Gwangjang Market. I will introduce you to the background of this famous spot and then give you options to try some authentic Korean street food. Next, we will go to Dongdaemun Market, one of the biggest shopping districts in Korea where you can find all kinds of fashion items from head to toe. I will explain how these Korean goods are traded and help navigate you to the spots where you can purchase the best fashion products. *I'll also give you some tips on how to bargain with the Korean shopkeepers, one of the most important things you'll need to know when shopping here. *When we're finished, I recommend that you stay and shop at Dongdaemun Market since the area becomes quite active at night.
